Nic Jones was good, but so too is Smither. He is a first-rate singer, guitarist and songwriter. Do yourself a favour: stop pissing around with trying to get musical samples, buy his 'Live As I'll Ever Be' CD and judge for yourself before dismissing him. Smither is not a blues artist - he is predominantly a singer/songwriter - but when he chooses to interpret a blues song, he does so with consummate artistry. And Smither sounds like Smither.
